"I found myself needing a drill on a recent visit to my mother-in-laws. Although DIY was on the cards I hadn't anticipated just how much I'd need a drill nor how many screws I'd have to undo, replace or use and had left my trusty mains powered drill at home. Already having a DeWalt reciprocating saw I bit the bullet and purchased this drill (with 2 batteries#. How glad I was. The batteries didn't take too long to charge and seemed to last for ages, certainly far long than I thought they would. The drill itself seems pretty well balanced and all of the controls are easy to use. I suspect that larger capacity batteries would change the balance and obviously make it heavier, but 1.3Ah seems okay for a DIYer. The keyless chuck is easy and speedy to use and the speed control on the trigger is top notch, making starting holes a lot easier. Although I didn't require the hammer action the drill itself managed well with 2mm galvanised steel #7mm hole#, wood and uPVC #various sizes 7mm to 12mm.# Switching to the lower range for use as a screwdriver I didn't find a screw that it couldn't undo #on maximum torque setting# and after experimentation I was using it to place screws until the torque level was reached with final tightening by hand with my ratchet screwdriver #I'm old fashioned that way). The working light comes on automatically and stays on for 20 seconds after the trigger is released, which proved quite handy when drilling in dark corners. The carry case is quite roomy and has space for a third battery if required. Overall I'm very happy with my purchase and I can see it making my mains hammer drill obsolete."
"I always say dewalt overcomes everything else, this a brilliant drill at a brilliant value I would recommend it to any tradesman, diyer or work shop. Long life will drill through anything can't fault it hope others will go for it"
"I have used Dewalt drills for a few years now and have always found them to be reliable and good at the job they are built for, that is drilling and screwing. My old drills use Ni-Cd batteries this one has a Li-Ion Battery so no memory effect when charging from a partially discharged state which can only be good."
"Husband wanted a decent drill after we had a new bathroom installed and he experienced tool envy when he saw the contractor's collection! Without a huge budget he's always lusted after a DeWalt and looking at various reviews this one came out very well so we took the plunge.
It's a good chunky drill, nice and heavy and the power is surprisingly good considering it's cordless.
The light is handy for eyeing up your target and the case feels sturdy and good quality.
From a - very - amateur DIYer this drill gets all the thumbs up and the price is excellent,"
"Good all round drill went to the shop when they had it on offer couldn't have timed it better definitely a good all round drill and for me cheap to use Screwfix for all my jobs round the house they have everything and if the haven't they make sure they have for you next day so no let downs and weeks to wait for new stock to come in."
"Great value for money from a name you can trust misplaced my last drill and needed one quick,ordered on line collected within 10 mins and a price that was more than fair,2 x batteries,a light to help you out in the darkest of places,rubber handle for grip,and a carry case. Great little combi drill.."
"This really is a bargain, and with a free use charger as well, don't be to put off by the 1.3 ah batteries as they last a lot longer than expected, breezes through any brick with a 5.5mm bit no problem"

"I needed a battery drill for a little DIY and ordered this drill at about6.00 pm one evening. It arrived the next morning and as a result I was able to tackle several jobs around the house. The drill is robust but fairly light and hence is very useful for those overhead jobs. I cannot fault it on anything and I'm very pleased with my purchase."
"Very easy to use and with the two chargers provided you can use this drill all day. Very powerful and lots of different adjustments. Lightweight and very handy having a box to carry it in. Plenty of room for drills and other items. Good value."
